Forever Cherished

Today, I was privileged to receive a former student's thoughtful gift from Indonesia. She had expressed her intention of buying me gifts from Medan, Indonesia before her trip. I know how precious a gesture such as this is, for I received some lovely snacks from her when she returned from her tour of Taiwan a couple of months ago. Her 'stepmother' knew she would get her another more precious gift which never failed to melt her heart every time she held it tight in her arms. It is priceless when you have a lasting connection and affection with your student. I could not be more touched and thankful upon receiving the heart-warming gift. Teacher or not, receiving a gift like that is incredibly touching.

Thank you, Hui Yin for all the trouble you have taken in bringing back such a heavy box of cake considering your petiteness. Thank you for thinking of me. Life couldn't be more wonderful!!!

Bika Ambon (Indonesian Yeast Cake)

It is said to originate from Medan, Indonesia.

A very rich yeast cake, with a texture of honeycomb.

It's the honeycomb texture that makes it so unique and different from the others.

Time to indulge...

My dearest daughter,

I'll cherish your love forever. My love will show no bounds cause you are my very special daughter.

Boston @ De Garden

Boston Concept Restaurant is not the newest addition to De Garden but it is always at the bottom of my list due to its not-so-good reputation and diners' bad remarks. Since I have almost covered all the eateries in De Garden, that ain't such a bad idea to complete my food tour in De Garden. All's well that ends well...

Post New Year Prosperity?

I had not had too many rounds of lou sang in the recent Chinese New Year. Had the first one on the third day and the second one on the eighth day. I am never a fan of lou sang because of the non-nutritious ingredients used and the mess created on the platter resulting from the vigorous stir. No one in the family appreciates lou sang thus discarding most of the leftover is always a common practice in the family.

This afternoon, as I was walking around the mall trying to settle down for a cup of coffee, I spotted Sushi King's New Year promotional items when I chanced along the restaurant. It's the hotate (scallop) season in Japan so they offer a variety of food made from hotate. The hottest item of the month is the mini lou sang @ RM8.88 (more prosperity coming your way???)

Mini Lou Sang @ RM8.88

Deep-fried tempura batter, hotate, raw salmon slices, crabstick, shredded carrot,
shredded cucumber, half a lime and another unknown ingredient.

Chuka Ika Sansai @ RM5.00
